ONA DC February Meetup – LegiStorm

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA DC

LegiStorm’s founder and president Jock Friedly will demonstrate the site’s new premuim Pro product, which brings together a wealth of data on members of Congress and their staff. The non-partisan LegiStorm has provided information on Congress since 2006.

The site was the first to put congressional staff salaries online (and helped spark a national movement to disclose public employee salaries), the first to put all earmarks on the Web (helping to end the practice), and the first to disclose all personal financial disclosures of all members of Congress and staff. This fall, LegiStorm launched its first subscription product, LegiStorm Pro.

That new service offers biographical information on members and staffers, including education, job history and family connections, as well as contact information and real-time tracking of staff positions, updated daily. It has in-depth tracking of the revolving door between K Street and Congress, including data about which companies more than 5,700 staffers and members have lobbied for. And much more, which you will hear about at the meetup.

Drinks and snacks provided, courtesy of LegiStorm. The meetup is at Medill.

Hope to see you there!

– Tiffany, Laura and Matt
